Whites 1855 Directory

HIGHAM is a handsome village, with several large mansions, pleasantly situated on a gentle acclivity near the confluence of the rivers Brett and Stour, on the southern confines of Suffolk, 5 miles E. of Nayland, 5 miles S. of Hadleigh, and 10 miles S.E. of Ipswich. Its parish contains 293 souls, and 803A. 17 r. of fertile and well-wooded land, P. P. Mannock, Esq., is lord of the manor, but a great part of the soil belongs to Edward Cooper, Esq., Mrs. Dawson, and the Rev. A. C. Reeve, who have neat bouses here. Higham Hall, the seat of E. Cooper, Esq., is a neat white brick mansion, with pleasant grounds, commanding fine views of the Stour Valley. The Church, (St. Mary,) has a tower and sis bells, and is a perpetual curacy, valued in K.B. at 5 6s 8d., and in 1835 at 288. It was appropriated to Trinity Priory, Ipswich, by Maude de Munchensi; but the rectorial tithes were purchased by a Mr. Gibbs or Mr. Smith, and given to the minister. Certain trustees are patrons, and the Rev. A. C. Reeve is the incumbent. The glebe is about 50A., and in 1840 the tithes were commuted for a yearly rent of 220. In the reign of Charles I., Thomas Bedfield charged his house and land here with the yearly payment of 10s. to the minister. In 1725, Thomas Glanville left a cottage here, for the relief of poor widows of Higham, Holton, and Raydon. POST, via Colchester.
